versity of Illinois was established at Navy Pier as part of the pro- 
gram of the State to meet its share of the national emergency in 
higher education resulting from the overwhelmingly increased de- 
mand, primarily by veterans, for instruction at the University level. 

Courses at the freshman and sophomore levels are offered in 
the College of Engineering, the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (ex- 
cept Home Economics laboratory work). In addition, Architecture 
courses in the College of Fine and Applied Arts are being offered. 

The program has been organized to provide for 4,000 students. 
Enrollment has been limited to qualified students residing in the 
Chicago area. Every effort will be made to integrate the instruc- 
tional program with the cultural and other resources of the City of 
Chicago so that a superior educational unit may be developed. 

Course offerings are identical with those made available to com- 
parable students in undergraduate work on the Urbana campus. In 
large measure, the administrative organization is identical with that 
existing dovvnstate. The fee schedule is identical with that of the 
Urbana campus, and, insofar as possible, the academic calendar will 
coincide with the University's schedule in Urbana. 

Suitable adjustments will be made in the academic program to 
provide facilities of a semi-professional and technical nature for 
those students who are qualified to succeed in a terminal program 
rather than one designed for further studies at the college level. 

The University, as a public institution, desires that every en- 
rol lee shall have the best possible opportunity to develop his indi- 
vidual capacities td their fullest degree. The Undergraduate Divi- 
sion ifl Chicago, through its educational, social, and cultural 
program, will provide its student body with the same high degree of 
service which has been so long a part of the University's tradition.

Age — An applicant must be at least sixteen years of age. The dean of the 
college concerned, however, may admit on petition a student fifteen years of 
age who meets all other requirements for admission and who is to reside, 
while attending the University, with his parents or guardian or with someone 
selected by them. 

High School Graduation — Ordinarily an applicant for admission by 
certificate must be a graduate of an accredited secondary school. However, an 
applicant who is a high school senior, who meets the age requirement, and who 
ranks in the upper twenty-five per cent of his class, may be admitted to the 
University under the following conditions: 

1. He must be recommended for admission by a committee of his high school 
faculty, consisting of the principal and at least three teachers, one of whom shall be 
a pupil counselor if the school has in operation an organized guidance program. 

2. He must have completed not fewer than 14 units acceptable toward admission 
(10 units in a three-year senior high school), including all subjects prescribed for 
admission to the particular curriculum in which he wishes to enroll. 

3. He must demonstrate that he possesses the intellectual ability, social ma- 
turity, and emotional stability essential to success in college by passing satisfactorily 
such tests as may be prescribed and administered by the Personnel Bureau of the 
University of Illinois. In general, a rank below the 75th percentile on University of 
Illinois norms in these tests will be cause for denial of admission. If the applicant 
has taken the tests given in many high schools through the Illinois High School 
Testing Program, the results of those tests will be considered along with the results 
of tests given by the Personnel Bureau. 

High School Scholarship — An applicant for admission to the Univer- 
sity whose rank in scholarship is in the upper three-quarters of his gradu- 
ating class and who meets the requirements as stated below is admitted by 
certificate to full freshman standing. Furthermore, the Registrar is authorized 
to admit, without adhering to the usual requirements as they pertain to majors 
and minors, an applicant whose rank in scholarship is in the upper fifty per 
cent of his graduating class. Such a student, however, must present those 
specific high school courses that are prerequisite to courses in the curriculum 
which he desires to follow in the University. 

A graduate of an accredited high school whose rank in scholarship is in 
the lowest quarter of his graduating class and who meets the requirements as 
d below is admitted by certificate to probationary status and, in connection 
with his first registration in the University, is required to take such tests as 
may be prescribed by the Personnel Bureau. Such a student, immediately upon 
ration, is placed under the special supervision of the dean of the college 
m which he is enrolled. He may be required by the (Kan or director to carry 
a reduced program of work or a program especially arranged to meet his 


Graduates of Unaccredited Secondary Schools — The Registrar is 
authorized to admit a student who is a graduate of an unaccredited Secondary 
School and whose genera] scholarship rank is in the Upper twenty-live per cent 

of ins graduating class, subject to his passing examinations at the University 

m advance of admission in: (\) English composition and rhetoric; and 

i j* i other high school subjects necessary to complete the requirements. 

6 ] 


A unit in the secondary school is a course covering an academic year and including 
not lcs> than the equivalent of 120 clock hours of classroom work. 

A major is three unit courses in one field. 

A minor is two unit courses in one field. 

Kifteen units of acceptable secondary school work are required, including: 

(A) Two majors and one minor, selected from Groups 1-5 on page 9. One 
of the majors must be English. 

(B) A total of at least nine units from the fields of English, foreign language, 
mathematics, science, and social studies, including preparation amounting to a 
major or minor sequence in at least three different fields. 

(C) All subjects required for the curriculum which the applicant desires to 
enter. (See table on next page.) 

(D) Six units from any of the high school subjects which are accepted by an 
accredited school toward its diploma and which meet University of Illinois ac- 
crediting standards. Fractional credits of less than one-half will not be accepted. 
Not less than one unit of work will be accepted in a foreign language, elementary 
algebra, plane geometry, physics, chemistry, or biology. 


Veterans may enter the University in any of the "colleges for which they have 
the essential prerequisites. They may qualify for admission under the entrance 
requirements described on pages 8 and 9 or on the basis of previous work in 
college, graduation from high school, the passing of examinations, or other 
satisfactory demonstration of ability to carry college work. 

All high school and college credentials should be sent to the Registrar's 
office, Navy Pier, for evaluation. 

Veterans planning to attend the University under the G.I. Bill should 
send their Certificates of Eligibility to the Registrar's Office after Septem- 
ber 1 and before the date of registration. Honorable discharge papers and 
credentials showing special training courses completed in the armed services 
should be presented to determine what credit, if any, may be allowed.

Only courses in history and appreciation of literature, and in composition (including 
oral composition as a part of a basic English course), and grammar, will count 
toward the three units in English required as a major for admission to all curricula. 
Four units in English, while not required for any curriculum, are recommended by 
all the colleges and schools. 


The foreign language requirement for admission to any curriculum is fulfilled by 
two units in any one of the following: German, Spanish, Italian, Latin, Greek. For 
some curricula three units in one language are recommended, and for some it is 
advantageous to have four units in one language or a combination of languages. 
Less than one unit in a language is not acceptable for admission. 



In Engineering or Architecture where advanced algebra or solid geometry, or both, 
are required, students who have only one unit in algebra and one unit in geometry, 
and who meet all other entrance requirements, may be admitted on condition that 
the deficiency be removed during their first year of residence. Where one unit in 
algebra and one unit in geometry are required for admission, general mathematics 
will be accepted if the content of the course is essentially the same as that ordinarily 
included in algebra and plane geometry. For all curricula involving chemistry (to 
which one unit in physics or chemistry or 2i/2 units in mathematics are prerequisite), 
students without credit in physics or chemistry who have only two units in mathe- 
matics will be required to take college algebra. 


A student entering the pre-medical curriculum as a freshman must have a scholar- 
ship rank in the upper half of his high school graduating class. A student trans- 
ferring to this curriculum from another college or university must have a scholastic 
average in his collegiate work not less than 3.5 in terms of the grading system 
of the University of Illinois. 


The required majors and minors defined above may be selected from the following 
five groups: (1) English — (In all cases one major must be in English.) Only 
courses in history and appreciation of literature, composition (including oral com- 
position as a part of a basic English course), and grammar will count toward a 
major. (2) Foreign Language — Three units in one language constitute a major. 
Two units in one language constitute a minor. (3) Mathematics — Only courses 
in algebra, plane geometry, solid and spherical geometry, and trigonometry will be 
accepted toward a major in this subject. (General mathematics may be accepted 
in lieu of algebra and geometry in cases where the content of the course is essen- 
tially the same as that ordinarily included in algebra and geometry.) (4) Science — 
(Including physics; chemistry; biology, or botany and zoology; general science, 
or physiology and physiography; astronomy; and geology.) The three units re- 
quired for a major must include at least one unit from the above subjects. (5) Social 
Studies — (Including history, civics, economics, commercial or economic geography, 
and sociology.) The three units required for a major must include at least two units 
in history. The two required for a minor must include at least one unit in history.

THE GENERAL CURRICULUM in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
offered at the Undergraduate Division in Chicago is aimed at giving the 
student a well-balanced intellectual development. It provides the resources for 
a liberal education, which emphasizes subjects leading to a general knowledge 
and interpretation of the cultures of both the past and present. The general 
curriculum requires a number of basic courses in literature or philosophy, 
social studies and natural sciences, and a reading knowledge of at least one 
foreign language. Students in this curriculum are encouraged to develop 
interest and talents supplementing their major subjects. 

The first two years of undergraduate work are offered in the following 
fields: Pre-teacher training; Pre-law; Pre-journalism; Chemistry and chemi- 
cal engineering; Pre-medicine; and Pre-dentistry.

for responsible positions of a technical and semi-technical character in indus- 
try, commerce and government, the College of Engineering provides training 
in the mathematical and physical sciences and their applications to the design, 
construction, and operation of industrial plants and public and private works 
of all kinds. The curricula in this college, though widely varied and specialized, 
are built on a general foundation of scientific facts and theories applicable to 
many different fields. Work in the classrooms, laboratories, shops, and draft- 
ing rooms is correlated by practical problems which the students solve by 
methods similar to those of practicing engineers. 

In addition to the fundamental and technological courses in each curricu- 
lum, some cultural courses are required, such as history, economics, and 
rhetoric, and others are elective, so that each student may broaden his pro- 
gram. Thus training for the practice of engineering as a profession is supple- 
mented by an understanding of human relationships, and appreciation of eco- 
nomic factors in industrial and public works enterprises, and an insight into 
regional and national problems of production and distribution of goods. 

At the Undergraduate Division in Chicago the first two years of courses 
in the following fields will be offered: aeronautical engineering; civil engi- 
neering; electrical engineering; mechanical engineering; mining and metal- 
lurgical engineering and engineering physics.

of Commerce and Business Administration seeks to develop in students the in- 
tellectual powers necessary for administrative careers. For this purpose it 
offers a unified program of basic studies for underclassmen. Though the fac- 
tual contents of many of the courses are directly useful in specific vocations 
— accounting, banking, selling, teaching — students should expect to serve an 
apprenticeship in the fields they enter after graduation from this college if 
they wish to prepare themselves for higher positions. 

While concentrating in a special field, students are encouraged to elect 
courses offered in other colleges of the University and to secure as liberal an 
education as possible, to avoid the narrowing effects of early specialization. 

The program of the first two years is organized about a nucleus of courses 
in accountancy and economics, mathematics and science, language and litera- 
ture, rhetoric and speech. While it is designed primarily as preparation for 
the third and fourth years of the curriculum, it affords a well-balanced com- 
bination of studies to those who are in college for only two years of prepara- 
tion for work in the business world. 

Students who have completed this two-year program with a satisfactory 
scholastic record are qualified for admission to the Upper Division of the 
College of Commerce and Business Administration or for admission to the 
College of Education, or the College of Law, or the School of Journalism. 
Students transferring to other colleges after completing only the two-year 
program of the College of Commerce receive their degrees not from the 
College of Commerce and Business Administration, but from the college to 
which they transfer on completing the requirements of that college. 

Many of the courses offered in the College of Commerce are open to 
students in other undergraduate colleges of the University.

ALL STUDENTS, except veterans who have fulfilled the four-hour physical 
education requirement while in the service, are required to take physical 
education each semester until four credit hours have been earned. Veterans 
are encouraged to utilize the physical education facilities, but additional credits 
will not be granted except as elective credit in the College of Commerce and 
Business Administration. 

Each student is given a health examination and a motor fitness test before 
registration. The findings by the Health Service and the testing division are 
used as a basis for prescribing each student's immediate physical education 
program. Students with handicapping physical defects are assigned to special 
courses where they are given individualized programs. Students with low 
scores in motor fitness are assigned to courses designed to develop strength, 
skill, and stamina. 

Students who are organically sound and demonstrate a fair degree of 
motor fitness are permitted to elect from a variety of activity courses. Men are 
offered classes in basic physical fitness, wrestling, handball, volleyball, bad- 
minton, tumbling, apparatus, boxing, personal defense, weight lifting and 
adapted sports. Women are offered classes in square dancing, volleyball, 
rhythms, basketball, badminton, and gymnastics. 

All general courses in physical education will meet three times (for 1 
hour) per week or two times (for 2 hours) per week. All general courses in 
physical education carry one hour of credit. 


Proficiency examinations, similar to the regular semester examinations, will 
be given each semester. Time and place of the examinations are set by the 
individual departments. There is no fee charged for these examinations. 

A student who passes a proficiency examination is given credit toward 
graduation provided that this does not duplicate credit counted for his admis- 
sion to the University and that the course is acceptable in his curriculum. The 
grade in proficiency examinations is "pass" or "not pass," but no student is 
given the grade of "pass" unless he has made at least "C" in the examination.

THE UNIVERSITY established the Division of Special Services for War 
Veterans as an agency with one chief function — to assist the veteran in 
returning to civilian life. To perform this function adequately, the Division 
offers its help both to those who are now veterans and to those who are still 
in the services. 

The Division can supply information about the various services of the 
University. It can give advice on matters of educational aids and adjustments. 
It can help the veteran to secure those benefits to which he is entitled by 
directing him to the sources of such benefits and assisting him in finding the 
proper procedures to be followed to obtain them with the least delay. 

The Division can help the veterans to find in the curricula now offered 
by the schools and colleges of the University the programs which they need 
2nd want. It will assist them in obtaining such needed or desirable revisions 
of existing programs as can be agreed to by the college administering these 
programs. The Division will furthermore assist them in obtaining consider- 
ation when faced with requirements which their period in service has made 
unduly difficult or impossible for them to meet. 

For those veterans whose needs cannot be met by the established curricula, 
the Division will arrange and direct educational programs equivalent in 
quantity and quality to the traditional curricula but especially planned to meet 
the individual needs and interests of the veteran. After successfully com- 
pleting such a program at Navy Pier the veteran may continue the program 
at Urbana for a degree of Bachelor of Science in the Division of Special 
Services for War Veterans. 

All of the University's agencies to assist students in matters of student 
life and welfare are available for veterans. Inquiries should be directed to 
Warren O. Brown, Navy Pier, Chicago, Illinois. 


All veterans who arc planning to attend the University of Illinois, Navy Pier, 
under the < i. I. Bill are urged to make application through the Veterans 
Administration for a Certificate of Eligibility and Entitlement unless one has 
previously been issued. 

The presentation of a Certificate of Eligibility and Entitlement will enable 

rans to register and to receive books and supplies under the ( t. I. Bill. 

With this Certificate the only fee charged in cash will he the General Deposit 

required of all students. Without this Certificate, veterans will he re- 
sponsible for their own tuition fees and hooks. A rebate will he made when 

i ertificate is secured. This Certificate is also necessary in order to receive 

monthl} subsistence payments for veterans in training under the ('.. I. Bill. 

Application for a < ertificat< of Eligibility should be made at once to the 

• of th. Veterans Administration, -^>'» W. Adams, Chicago. Service rec 

ords showing separation from the armed forces or terminal leave orders and 

[ 18 ] 

\t>( > Form 100 or NAVPERS 554 should be presented to the Veterans Ad- 
ministration since evidence of discharge from service is required at the time 
the application is filed. 

Certificates of Eligibility will be accepted by the Division of Special 
Services for War Veterans in the Registrar's Office. 

Veterans who have previously used a Certificate of Eligibility under the 
G. I. Bill, or a Letter of Authorization under the Vocational Rehabilitation 
Act, should make arrangements at the office of the Veterans Administration to 
be issued revised authorizations to be presented at Navy Pier. 

Students receiving educational benefits under the Vocational Rehabilita- 
tion Act should be certain that there is an authorization for their training on 
file at the University by the time they are to register. 

An authorization under which veterans may receive books and supplies 
will be available to veterans. This form will be issued at the time of registra- 
tion provided that a Certificate of Eligibility or an authorization for Vocation 
Rehabilitation training is on file in the Division of Special Services.

The Dean of Students is responsible for student life and welfare outside of 
the classroom. He is charged with the direction, supervision, and coordination 
of numerous offices and agencies which work in the field of student life, and 
which are active in the guidance of students in non-academic activities which 
contribute to the best conditions for academic success. Offices and functions 
included within the Dean of Students' organization are: the Dean of Men, 
the Dean of Women, the Student Employment Office, the University Health 
Service, hospital and medical service benefits, and the required work in 
physical education. 

The Dean of Students will also be in charge of student social and cultural 
activities, both on Navy Pier and in cooperation with the cultural and other 
agencies in the City of Chicago. The Dean of Students, E. A. Wolleson, is 
available for individual conferences. 


The Office of the Dean of Men is organized for the purpose of aiding men 
students. The Dean not only gives advice and guidance, but also directs stu- 
dents to other administrative offices of the University which are organized to 
deal specifically with various matters of student welfare. The work of the 
Dean of Men is in counseling students and in advising them on any matters 
which they wish to present to him. He is well informed on matters having to 
do with registration and the many perplexing problems which confront the 
new student. New students are urged to come to the Office of the Dean of 
Men as soon as they arrive at the Pier. 


The Office of the Dean of Women is the clearing place for the problems of 
undergraduate women. Students are urged to come with questions that in- 
evitably arise — social, academic, or financial. In addition to the daily counsel- 
ing of individuals, the Office of the Dean of Women sponsors many of the 
organizations for women students. The Dean of Women will also direct 
student social and cultural activities at the Pier.

FOR STUDENTS who find it necessary to earn a portion of their expenses, a 
limited number of part-time jobs will be available in various University 
offices and departments. Students will be paid at an hourly rate. The Univer- 
sity maintains, in the Office of the Dean of Students, a Student Employment 
Division to assist students with contacts for employment, both in connection 
with the University and with industry and business establishments in the City 
of Chicago. 

The student who expects to be employed should arrange his class schedule 
and study hours for employment, or see the type of employment which is suited 
to his scholastic program. Freshmen in curricula for which laboratory periods 
occupy most day hours between eight in the morning and five in the afternoon 
generally find food-service work done at meal hours the most convenient and 
most time-conserving. Students in other curricula may improve their employ- 
ment opportunities at the time they register by arranging class schedules 
which leave consecutive hours free each day. 


UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS that exempt the holder from tuition 
and matriculation fees include: County Scholarships (awarded on competitive 
examination); General Assembly Scholarships (awarded on nomination of 
members of the General Assembly); University Scholarships (awarded by the 
University Committee on the basis of scholarship and need) ; Military 
Scholarships (for veterans who were Illinois residents or University students 
when they enlisted). 

Cash scholarship awards in varying amounts are made to the applicants 
on the basis of scholastic promise and need by the Committee on Undergradu- 
ate Scholarships from funds donated by individuals and organizations. 


LOAN FUNDS are of two general classes: (1) emergency loan funds, and 
(2) long term or regular loan funds. The emergency funds are for small loans 
to be made on short notice, and to be repaid within a short time. The regular 
funds are for larger loans, and may be carried for a longer time. 

Most of these different funds have special qualifications which must be 
met by applicants, such as funds for students in certain curricula, of high 
scholastic standing, or to overseas veterans. Good scholarship, as well as the 
need of the individual, is a general qualification in all cases. Loans are not 
ordinarily made to students during their first year in the University or until 
they have demonstrated their ability. More detailed information regarding loan 
funds may be obtained from the Office of the Dean of Students, Navy Pier.

AS ONE OF ITS SERVICES to students throughout the State, the Univer- 
sity offers, through its Student Personnel Bureau, a complete aptitude testing 
and counseling service. The Personnel Bureau's staff of experienced counselors 
can help you discover the answers to questions about your general fitness for 
specific courses of study; the kind of work in which you have a good chance to 
succeed; the measures you can take to increase your efficiency as a student — 
in reading rapidly and understanding^, in increasing your powers of concen- 
tration. It can help you, also, in developing a personality that will be an asset 
to you in school and in the years that follow your work here. 

Since an objective discussion of your abilities, interests, educational back- 
ground, and personal situation can be of great help to you in making your 
decision as to your course of study, it is highly desirable that you avail your- 
self of these services some time previous to your actual registration in the 
University if possible. 

As a student at the University of Illinois at Navy Pier the testing and 
counseling services of the Student Personnel Bureau will be available to you 
at all times. Whenever you wish to talk over any educational, vocational, or 
personal problem, simply drop in at the Bureau and ask for an appointment 
with one of the counselors. 

The Student Personnel Bureau is located on the third floor at the extreme 
east end of the Pier. 


THE UNIVERSITY maintains a health service for students to promote their 
physical and mental health, to control communicable disease among them, 
and to teach them the essentials of healthful living. Members of its staff give 
instruction in hygiene, conduct physical examinations, supervise food handlers, 
make sanitary inspections, hold personal conferences with students, and assist 
them in every way possible in making prompt adjustment. As the functions of 
the Health Service are primarily educational and preventive, its staff does 
not assume responsibility for the care of students beyond giving medical 
advice, emergency treatment, and referral to competent specialists and prac- 
titioners of medicine. 

The health service station is located on the third floor at the extreme cast 
• n'l of the Pier. 

The Hospital and Medical Service fee paid at the time of registration 
provides ward care in any hospital for a period not to exceed twenty-eight 
days in any semester. In addition, a substantial payment is made toward the 
attending physician's Charges, usually SUfHcienl in the case of minor illnesses 
to give complete protection. There is also an allowance for laboratory tests, 

thetic or administration thereof, use of operating rooms, medicine, drugs 
and dressings. 

[ 22 


THE LIBRARY at Navy Pier is a branch of the 2,000,000 volume library on 
the Urbana campus. The library, located on the second floor at the extreme 
east end of the Pier, contains over 10,000 volumes. Books and periodicals ade- 
quate to cover reading requirements in all courses offered at the Pier may be 
found there. 


STUDENT RECREATION LOUNGES are located throughout Navy Pier. 
A large reception lounge is located on the first floor at the entrance to the 
Pier. Additional lounges are situated on the third floor at the extreme east 
end of the Pier. These lounges are open daily during class hours for student 
recreation and reading. 


IN VIEW of the lack of adequate eating facilities in the immediate vicinity of 
Navy Pier, the University has set up a cafeteria to provide one-menu, mod- 
erately-priced lunches for students and staff. The cafeteria will also serve 
light breakfasts. 

The cafeteria, located on the first floor at the east end of the Pier, will 
seat approximately 1,100 persons. A dining room for faculty and staff will 
seat 125. It is planned to serve at least 3,500 lunches daily. In addition, the 
University will operate three lunch counters, located at convenient points 
on the Pier.
